    MSFT update directed to “non-boot” drive


    by leeserve ·


    I have a need to update system images and drives by either mounting the images (Acronis), or attaching the hard drives to another system.

    My question is, is there a way to tell windows update to target a drive other than the one that was booted?

    The end goal is to automate the process so that images/drives are mounted, updated, and then saved automatically.

    Thanks in advance.

      I don’t think that you’ll be successful in accomplishing this. The entire Idea behind Windows Update is to update the current Running Windows System. The Update Service [b]Can Not[/b] update a non-running OS on another HDD as it’s not running and can not be updated.
